The body was wrapped in felt, the cold cave temperatures of the burial site contributed to the successful preservation of the mummy.

Grave goods included a saddle, bridle, clay vase, wooden bowl, trough, iron kettle, the remains of entire horse, and four different 'Dool' (Mongolian clothes), pillows, a sheep's head and felt travel bag
